AUTM

AUTM

AUTM\'s global network of members come from more than 350 universities, research institutions, teaching hospitals and government agencies as well as hundreds of companies involved with managing and licensing innovations derived from academic and nonprofit research.

The association was founded in 1974 as the Society of University Patent Administrators with the objective of addressing a concern that inventions funded by the U.S. government were not being commercialized effectively. Through the years AUTM has grown beyond this single objective and now provides professional development and networking opportunities for technology transfer professionals at all career levels and from established and newly forming organizations worldwide.

AUTM provides numerous resources for members including survey reports, professional development courses, a comprehensive training manual, peer-reviewed journal and a worldwide community of peers with expertise in all areas of intellectual property management.
